Synopsis: 
We studied the association between health-related quality of life and risk of malnutrition among persons on maintenance haemodialysis. Persons on receiving maintenance haemodialysis had a poorer health-related quality of life score and were more likely to be at risk of malnutrition. This may have implications for effective patient management.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: The purpose of this study was to determine health-related quality of life (HRQOL) and risk of malnutrition among persons with chronic kidney disease (CKD), on maintenance haemodialysis.
